LinkedIn is the most popular social media network for professionals. It is the place where some of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs, recruitment managers, and startup founders like to scour for talent. Naturally, it’s also the best platform for networking. 

A soft skill like networking is sought after by professionals in almost all industries, and it could help you get the jump in the career you have been looking for.

LinkedIn also prioritizes networking by establishing degrees of connection. For sales prospecting, there’s hardly a better choice than LinkedIn. You can quickly pinpoint potential leads with relative ease on the platform. However, LinkedIn has a set of guidelines that all users must follow. 

Each member of your network is known as a connection on LinkedIn. If you look carefully, you might notice 1st, 2nd, or 3rd written beside a connection name. But what does 1st, 2nd, 3rd mean on LinkedIn? It’s essential to understand what these numbers denote as you go about looking for sales prospects.
